The Pittsburgh Penguins weren’t done making moves after all. Today, they acquired forward Jussi Jokinen from Carolina.

Jokinen cost the Pens a conditional sixth- or seventh-round pick; however, the Hurricanes will retain some salary.

Jokinen is signed through next season with a $3 million cap hit. The 30-year-old recently cleared waivers.

A 30-goal scorer in 2009-10, Jokinen’s production has fallen to just six goals in 33 games this season.
